Around here



Around here the halls are decked and since we put up the tree last week it really does feel like Christmas. With the very mild weather we have had it feels like September!



Around here we have sent out almost all our Holiday mail. I have send out handmade Holiday cards for as long as I can remember. Since I love to get something else than bills in my mailbox I guess other people do too! And what if the cards a little bit late, they are still a nice suprise!

Around here we are all tired, With two people with anxiety issues and one with fatigue, this time of year is especially difficult. And with the dark days that we have here up north it´s so hard waking up early in the morning. We look forward to the Christmas break and 2 weeks off.



Around here we still have a few gifts to buy. We have been rather good at buying them all autumn to spread the costs a bit. We have been able to find some fun things for the ones on our list!



Around here the cats have been spending more and more time inside with the hard wind we have had lately. And once again I have decided that if I am ever re-born, I want to be a house cat!

Around here I am wrapping up my 4th year of documenting our everyday lifes with the pocket style scrapbooking. That is so cool! I am doing it all again in 2016 and by now it´s all automatic really.



Around here we celebrated Christmas a little bit early with my dad and daughter since she is spending Christmas at her dad´s this year. I love our traditions!

I´ll be back tomorrow with a look at my December minibook for this year!

Memory keeping | Autumn TN 02

If you´d like to see my first few pages in my Autumn mini, just click here

I am still working away in my Autumn travelers notebook. I have enjoyed to add bits and pieces and stories about some of my favorite things about fall. I will go on in November and then start my annual Christmas mini at the start of December. 


Quotes are one of my favorite things to include in my memory keeping projects, so it is no suprise that I have quite a few in here. 



I will use most of the remaining pages for my 30 day gratitude project that I do every year with the grand finale of Thankgiving at the end of the month. 
I have a question, if you are one who makes traveler notebooks, how do you store them when they are done?


Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 6 past favorites

Three years ago, when my fiancĂ© and me celebrated our first December together, I started a December minibook. It´s a 6x8 binder from Simple Stories with pocket pages. I decided that I´ll have three years worth of December memories in this mini. So this year marks the last one being documented in this book. I am not doing anything daily (as in the December Daily project that Ali Edwards do) and since I do Project Life every week this album is all about our December traditions and sometimes I do have double recordings, but for me it is all ok. What I have felt special about working in my December mini is that I go all in with glitter, cheesy wordings etc. It´s fun! I fitted 3 years of Decembers in one album and this year I am getting a new album, but will still do the same thing.

Today I thought I´d share a few favorite pages and elements from the past 3 years before I start the new album.


1. I really like that I have included the things I have been inspired by every year. I take a screen…

Kellie Stamps CT 2016 | November

I'm so happy about the re-release of two alpha sets this month from Kellie Stamps! Slim Jim is a set I use all the time for all kinds of projects. 

Here is a new page I did for the re-release.

I've been so inspired by fellow team member Diane and her awesome traveller notebooks lately. She often creates backgrounds using her alpha stamps, so I lifted her and made this background for my layout. I very rarely use any other color than black to stamp with, but after using this blue/teal Ink I may have to start. 

Since my love is worse in his MS his wheelchair is a must. We are that couple that hold hands a lot and that is something I miss. But when the road is a tiny bit downhill we totally hold & roll :)
